Fresh Watermelon

It’s officially summer. I can feel the temperature rising, the days longer. When thinking of summer, I always associate watermelon with it. Nothing works better then a ice-cold juicy watermelon that can cool down a hot summer day. It’s also a must when BBQing~

Pattern: Little House Needleworks “Fresh Watermelon”
Thread: DMC cotton floss
Fabric: 32ct Belfast Linen in Lt. Mocha
Finished Size: 5.5” x 5.375”
Completion Date: 06-25-2010

Besides the mouth watering watermelon in this design, those cute little ants were the other object that caught my eye!!! They just added some whimsical to the whole thing~~ With those shinning black beads, you would almost thought they are real ants!!!

There’s also a little black bird button that suppose to go on top of the watermelon, I still yet have to get it. But I think this looks pretty nice already~~

So how do you say cool in these long summer days? I hope it is filled with sweetness and joy~

  9. I've not seen that chart before! So cute. I think watermelon is the very best part of summer. I'm always sad to see it go out of season.
